Submerged (2005) (part 4 of 6)
Cut to the dam at night. Hilan, the guy formerly known as Captain Longhair, enters the mad scientist lab and begins yelling at Lehder about Cody’s team. Meanwhile, Plowden, now fully brainwashed, stands there showing as much emotion as… well, as a typical Steven Seagal performance, actually. As Hilan talks, Lehder smashes Plowden in the face with his cane and gives us this non sequiter:
|Lehder: Product testing: the only gratification a scientist ever receives. [Translation: The whole brainwashing thing turned out not to be a chick magnet. I haven’t gotten laid since the Reagan administration.]|
Suddenly, Fletcher enters and shoots up the place, and Hilan is killed. Well, that was abrupt. Fletcher and Plowden and Lehder all exit, leaving behind Colonel Sharpe and the rest of the brainwashed soldiers. Apparently, the idea is to let Cody’s team rescue them, then activate their latent assassin tendencies later, using them as a Trojan horse of sorts.
